Everything for animals: Bird food Video Guide

Many people give budgie, canary and Co. a home. Special feed mixtures are available for ornamental birds, consisting of different seeds. The composition of the feed takes into account the requirements of the bird species in question. A budgie or cockatiel needs different nutrients than a canary or exotic parrot species. Sometimes bird food also contains nuts or dried fruits. In addition, also with ornamental birds, certain treats are very popular like nibbling sticks or piston millet. The healthy nibbling fun also helps with beak care

Wild birds also need species-appropriate food. Especially in the cold season many people set up birdhouses and entertain their feathered guests. They are happy about the varied food mix, because worms and insects are hard to find in winter. However, the feed mixture should also be adapted to the individual bird species, because wild birds also have different demands on their feed. The cute blue tits prefer tit rings or tit dumplings, because these provide them with vital fats. Chopped peanuts are also eaten by chaffinches, titmice and robins. Raisins are very popular with blackbirds. The undemanding sparrow, on the other hand, picks everything it finds in the birdhouse. All bird species like sunflower seeds. They are particularly suitable as bird food for the winter season. If you want to give your garden dwellers a treat, you can also lay out halved apples, because your feathered friends won’t find fresh fruit in winter

Wild birds may be fed throughout the winter. Feeding must not be limited to particularly frosty days. Already in September or October food can be laid out, so that the birds already know their feeding place and quickly find it again. Wild birds memorize a feeding place after a few visits and like to drop by again and again. If wild birds are fed early, they have the possibility of acquiring fat reserves already before the winter. The birdhouse should be placed in such a way that it can be easily seen from the window. It is to be paid attention that it cannot be reached by cats. There are also feeding columns that can be hung on the roof beams of balconies or terraces

In the trade there are many different bird food sorts, which differ in price and quality very much. Many manufacturers stretch the feed with fillers, which are mostly found under the birdhouse. Because the filling material is sorted out by the birds. If the feed is bad, a high failure can be observed. Good bird food only contains seeds that the birds eat completely. Very high quality bird food often also has certification. Manufacturers who produce high-quality fodder have their fodder inspected by bird protection associations and receive a certificate

Birds should not eat salty foods such as sausage, bread, ham or cheese. These foods are unsuitable for birds and harm their organism. Pure fat such as butter or margarine is also unsuitable. The feathered guests also do not tolerate frozen food, such as small pieces of apple. Apples should only be offered whole or halved.

Bird food usually has a long shelf life and can be stored well. Here, however, it is absolutely necessary to pay attention to cleanliness. Badly stored food spoils faster and is often eaten by moths or mice. Old and dried food does not contain enough nutrients and is not accepted by wild birds anymore.
